A27 Fontwell to Tangmere weekday night-time closures – July & August
Another bout of road repairs coming up in early July , running until the end of August. Night-time closures (8pm to 6am, weekdays only) will affect BOTH carriageways between Fontwell to the far side of Tangmere, starting with the EAST-bound carriageway 8 – 30 July and then the WEST-bound carriageway will be closed each weekday night-time 31 July to 23 August.
Here are the full details:
8-30 July – EASTBOUND A27 closed weekday nights 8pm to 6pm
This will affect us in Slindon if you are RETURNING from Chichester (or all points beyond). The eastbound carriageway will be closed from 8pm to 6am between the Temple Bar flyover – thats just before the Tangmere roundabout – to the Fontwell roundabout.
31 July to 23 August – WESTBOUND A27 closed weekday night 8pm to 6pm
This will affect your journeys INTO Chichester (and all points beyond). The westbound carriageway of the same section of the A27 will be closed from 8pm to 6am.
There will, of course, be diversions, but these will be to the south of the A27 (A29 and A259 to Shrimpney and North Bersted). For us, it would doubtless be a lot easier to travel to and from Chichester via Eartham and the A285 Chichester-Petworth road.
The closures and diversions will run during weekday nights only – unless weather conditions dictate extra hours.
